Addiction Poem

Heroin, Alcohol, Cocaine Or Pot

I have been dealing with various addiction for the past ten years. I ended up in jail a few months ago and had a lot of time to think. Obviously. This is just one of the poems that came from that experience.

Addiction will always cause friends and family pain
But looking at the big picture, what was there to gain
Addiction does not judge you by age, sex, color or race
It will only end you up in this small space
Addiction will take all that you have got
Heroin, alcohol, cocaine or pot
Addiction can consume your whole life
Making it impossible to be a good mother, daughter or wife
Addiction is a disease making you feel hopeless
Giving up seems like the only answer to this mess
Please hold on just a little bit longer
Recovery will only make you stronger.
